My self-summary
i'm pretty much a dork. actually, there's no 'pretty much' about it. i'm a dork and i'm cool with it. that's not to say i sport pocket protectors and host D&D tourneys in my mom's basement, but rather that i'm a staunch proponent of the movement for the addition of the word 'swayze' to the english dictionary as a verb. imagine if in the near future you could hear a presidential candidate wax rhapsodic about the time he first laid eyes on his future wife on the dance floor at some gala and how he 'swayzed' the heels off that bird. see? you're on board. 'bird' is a term i picked up in london that has kind of stuck. i lived there for three years and got to do a lot of traveling in that time. i've also lived in ghana and prague. although, it's only showed me how much more of the world i NEED to see. you might have also noticed my aversion to the shift key. i don't feel the need to waste a keystroke while typing unless the capitalization of letters fits to serve as a point of stress. if this annoys you, you probably NEED to RELAX! see what i did there?

this is the kind of tangential nonsense you can expect from a conversation with me. i can be serious when the need arises, but where's the fun in that? i just want to laugh. all the time.
